Summary, etc.:
An accident during a bar mitzvah celebration leads to a rift between the men and women in a devout community in Jerusalem in this rousing, good-hearted comedy. Awash with Jerusalem's distinctive glow, THE WOMEN'S BALCONY is a warm, poignant portrait of a modern community struggling to balance protocol with practical, progressive values - at once rebellious and respectful in spirit.. Nominated for Best Supporting Actress (Orna Banai) and Best Supporting Actor (Avraham Aviv Alush) at the Awards of the Israeli Film Academy.. "Subtly handled by director Emil Ben-Shimon and screenwriter Shlomit Nehama and rendered heartfelt and compelling by an outstanding cast." - Peter Keough, Boston Globe. "It's impossible to resist a film that has such rich characters, and makes a complicated subject both enlightening and entertaining." - David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle
